Do you still need some study points to fill your free space in the first semester of the acdemic year 2020/2021, and are you interested in minorities, their history, their position in society and how they are represented in art and literature? Or are you maybe curious about minority languages such as Frisian, Welsh, or the languages that migrants bring with them if they move to another country?
We have some great courses for you, in which you will gain useful knowledge on cultural diversity and multilingualism, train academic skills such as writing papers and presenting, and gain practical skills such as writing for the internet, making videos and writing policy advices! Below, you can find information about courses in the first semester offered to all BA students enrolled at the University of Groningen by the Minorities & Multilingualism BA programme. You can take each of these courses seperately, or you can take a full 30 ECTS package of a number of courses that together form a coherent programme around a certain theme. In addition, if you’re interested in Frisian and already speak some Frisian, you can sign up for courses under the Frisian header: history, lingusitics and old-Frisian. If you are interested in Frisian, but do not speak the language (yet), you can sign up for a course for L2 speakers of Frisian, which brings you from A0 (no knowledge) to B2 in one semester. Please note that currently, you cannot obtain ECTS for this particular course. If you are interested in this course of Frisian for non-Frisian speakers, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. For information about all other courses you can contact email@example.com. The full list of courses in the M&M programme can be found on Ocasys.
